If you plan to mass-produce them, I assume there isn't time to give them
some experiences of their own (for humans that takes at least 10 years).
But maybe, this process can be speeded up. On the otherhand, if these AIs
can learn so fast, they soon will need to be smarter and then the learning
time goes up again. (Compare that to humans, if we all would live 10,000
years, we would think that everybody under 100 years was more or less a
child, even if those childs would be as smart as todays adults.)
